Hello everyone!

Just an update that our โ€œcancellation policyโ€ will be increasing to 48hrs.

This will mean that should you cancel the lesson with less than 48hrs notice you will unfortunately be charged the full price of the lesson.

Due to the huge demand for lessons we are currently running massive waiting lists and turning people away, including people wanting additional lessons on the build up to their tests that we just canโ€™t do due to lack of time. We require this additional notice to allow us, and the people we offer the cancelled and now available space to, to arrange work/child care/college etc etc to accommodate the newly available lesson.

I hope you all understand and can appreciate this.

This is effective from Monday 5th July 2021.

Many thanks

Alex & Lucy

***BREAKING NEWS***

Myself and my sister Lucy are really excited to finally be able to announce our big news that we are so excited about! We have spent the last few weeks putting everything together to form our very own family run driving school! Weโ€™d like to introduce you all to....

G.E.T Driving School!

A few people will know that our dad Geoff was a local instructor for years before his retirement. So G.E.T is named after the big man himself.

Both of us have been driving instructors locally for several years now and building a family business together is the next exciting step for us. Look out for our cars travelling around Andover and surrounding areas from the 12th April when weโ€™re finally back on the road.

Weโ€™ll be offering our usual fun and personable lessons to all our pupils and appreciate everyoneโ€™s support for our new business venture! Please continue liking, sharing, tagging and leaving the amazing feedback for us both and our business.

Weโ€™re so excited for the future of G.E.T Driving School and teaching safe driving for life.

For enquiries about driving lessons please contact us on:

A week to go till the BIG announcement. Hereโ€™s a little sneak preview ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ’จ

Only 9days to go before the BIG announcement. Very exciting ๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿ’จ

Only 9days to go before the BIG announcement. Very exciting ๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿ’จ

[03/19/21]   Looking for a driving instructor:

1. We are NOT waiting for you to call (week before you turn 17) as we've been fully booked for several weeks and like myself, sometimes months, plan ahead chose an instructor and get your name down on their waiting list.

2. Asking "how many hours do I need?" when the first few lessons have been completed, is like asking "how long is a piece of string?โ€ Remember itโ€™s a skill for life be patient and enjoy your journey.
Rome wasnโ€™t built in a day.

3. When asked upon enquiry whether you've driven before, does not mean in a carpark/forest with your mates/parents (illegal too).

4. The "cost" should NOT be your no. 1 priority!
We teach a life skill and itโ€™s fine to pay ยฃ35-ยฃ40 for riding lessons, music lessons, football coaching etc. I can assure you that it's more dangerous to drive than the above.
Cheap is not always good!
Good is not always cheap!

5. When you cancel short notice, we charge! It costs US money as we all budget the hours we need to teach to live. If you weren't paid for missing work, I'm sure you'd get your a*** into work when you've got a "cold", headache, tummy-ache etc"

6. "My mate passed in 5/10hrs..." Really? We hear it all the time! Believe what you want but I doubt it.

7. When you fail, take responsibility for it... It's a grown-up thing to do. It wasn't because the examiner didn't like you, it was a "Monday", it was a "Friday", end month etc YOU failed because you didn't drive to the required standard expected.

8. If you fail, you can't retake a test for 10 working days FOR A REASON... You need additional training.
It's no good just taking another test you failed because you didnโ€™t reach the standard required.

9. We, as instructors have heard all the stories about "my last instructor was unreliable etc" and in many cases, it's due to being charged for late cancellation of lessons (Our wages).

10. We pay a lot to earn our qualifications, pass our exams, run our car i.e. fuel, insurance, tax, tyres, licence... When we tell you a certain way to do something, it's for a good reason so hearing "My dad said..." really doesn't help your cause.

11. Be patient with yourself - it takes times to learn. It does not happen overnight.
Learning to drive will probably be one of the most difficult dangerous skills you ever learn.

12. Don't stay up till 2am the night before and expect to be sharp the next day. No drinking, smoking, drugs etc ....we know when you've been at it. Imagine what the police would do with you should you have an accident after passing your test!!!

13. Practice makes perfect - practice practice and practice no lesson goes to waste when learning how to drive, we learn something new each time we get behind the wheel with different scenarios and situations, you will know when you are ready to leave us when you are doing everything confidently and independently.

14. What you put in is what you will get out...so pay attention and ask as many questions as you need to ask ๐Ÿ™‚

Whoever you are and whoever you learn with enjoy the journey ๐Ÿ™‚

Have A Good Day ๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿ’จ

[02/22/21]   ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION***

Further to the announcement of the 'road map' by the PM in parliament this afternoon, I will update everyone once I have received official guidance from the DVSA.

I do not want to speculate on a return date. The PM stated that 7 days notice will be given for each step change to help plan.

Historically the DVSA have not been swift in their response to any official announcement, please be patient!
